Opening a Bank Account

Opening a Bank Account

 

You will need a checking account at a German bank in order to receive your salary and pay bills and rent. The following documents are required when you open your account: Your passport, confirmation of your registration from the district office, and your employment contract or other proof of income. Many banks require you to set up an appointment in person to open an account; however, some direct banks offer an online application process for new accounts.
